bounded by the curves y = x^2 and y = mx is equal to 8.

I would very much appreciate it if someone could find the answer and explain how you did it.

**Abby**, Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at 12:25amthe anti derivative is (m/2)x^2 - 1/3(x)^3 so if you use the 2nd fundamental theorem of calculus using (mx - x^2) over the interval (0,m) and set that equal to 8 (the interval is 0 to m because the function with the larger area is mx) you should get m^3 / 8 = 8. Solve for m and you're done :)
